Micro Thesis - Distribution Growth
We invest in partnerships whose fundamentals will be an impetus for future distribution growth. Growth in distributions is a hedge against inflation - it preserves the purchasing power of our investment over the long-term. Strong growth also often results in underlying capital appreciation.
